Warm Path

          Warm Path        5x7        Oil on Paper/Panel        
This is the smallest of the paintings I've done on paper but definitely one of my favorites. The trees seem to line up in support of each other and the colours of the grasses were irresistable.

Clouds Over Prairie

Clouds Over Prairie   8x6   Oil on Paper/Panel                       Sold
This little painting was one of a number I did for Art in the Park this summer and the first one sold. I discovered Arches oil painting paper in May when Delta had it on sale and I had so much fun painting on it. I underpainted whole sheets in warm colours and then split the sheets. It started out as a lark testing a new medium and it was such a pleasure to paint on I've done a series of smalls. My favorite part of using it is how it grabs the paint randomly.
